Purtscher's retinopathy is a well-known finding post trauma. It is microangiopathy occurring due to occlusion of peripapillary terminal arterioles that supply the superficial capillaries. There are numerous reports in literature describing this entity, but seldom any report describing its course and nature of resolution supported with imaging. We present a case of a 21-year-old young male who developed Purtscher's retinopathy post head trauma, with sequential follow-up imaging over a period of 3 months, till near complete resolution of the condition. The supportive imaging also aids in understanding the pathology in a simplified way.
